Digby has thoughts on divisiveness. He concedes that racism is bad, but the most dangerous example he seems able to come up with is the concept of white privilege. “We know what that led to,” he ominously intones, though it is not clear what, in fact, that led to.
The most highly educated generation this country has ever produced have been “taught they are helpless victims” and discouraged from excelling, apparently. Also, there’s the usual safe space straw man thrown in for good measure. (I’m looking forward to Digby’s take on the most recent development in fellow wordsmith Bret Stephens’ holy war against safe spaces.)
And then there’s “the Blacks.” They need to “forget” and “let go of the injustices heaped upon them from slavery through Jim Crow.” Seemingly content that he’s made his point, or at least his word count, Digby encourages us all (but especially “the blacks”) to simply “look forward.” Just move on; get over it. Definitely do not talk about his white privilege.
